2018 was the first year I truly embraced Instagram for photography, and I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to share with you my love for Portland and northern Oregon. Happy New Year and may 2019 bring you much happiness!

Only two days left before 2019! How are you spending your remaining time?

(Photo taken earlier this month…I’m mainly just chillin’ at home over the holidays!)

Today’s the first day I’m wearing my new glasses (old ones broke!) while working on the computer…and it’s actually rather sunny out. The full effect is:

Major Happy Mood Time! 🤩

(which is a blessing because having to wear my prescription sunglasses everywhere, even indoors, was really making me feel depressed. So glad I can see normally once more!)

Merry Christmas! I’m thankful to be spending time with my family and enjoying some rest over the holidays. May your days be merry and bright! ❄️

I don’t have time to do a whole write up, so here’s the gist of it: since I’m no longer using #Facebook to share family photos, I wanted to find a way to create a password-protected photo gallery. After some research, I tried out SmugMug. It works great! For only a few dollars a month, I can upload and present photos far more beautifully than I ever could on social media, it’s secure, and it’s ad-free. Simply perfect and just in time for the holidays. Now I can email or text the link & password to family and friends, and we’re off to the races. 👍

Now I know why The Martian movie was made. I finally got around to reading the original book, and holy cow is this a fun read. Not to mention very cinematic (almost like reading a screenplay). Can’t wait to watch the movie once again! #movies #scifi

Rewatched Blade Runner 2049 again last night…I hadn’t seen it since my first viewing in the theater (which was quite the experience). Good God I love this movie. As expected I picked up on a number of things during this subsequent viewing I hadn’t before. Of most interest to me are the biblical themes…for example, Officer K at the end is a type of Jesus figure. I’ll have to write more in a spoiler review some time! (Also, I enjoyed the movie soundtrack even more this time around…so-o-o good.) #scifi #movies

Light trails on the Hawthorn Bridge

The Hawthorne Bridge is a truss bridge with a vertical lift that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, joining Hawthorne Boulevard and Madison Street. It is the oldest vertical-lift bridge in operation in the United States and the oldest highway bridge in Portland. It is also the busiest bicycle and transit bridge in Oregon, with over 8,000 cyclists and 800 TriMet buses (carrying about 17,400 riders) daily.

We are Google employees. Google must drop Dragonfly.

We are Google employees and we join Amnesty International in calling on Google to cancel project Dragonfly, Google’s effort to create a censored search engine for the Chinese market that enables state surveillance.

We are among thousands of employees who have raised our voices for months. International human rights organizations and investigative reporters have also sounded the alarm, emphasizing serious human rights concerns and repeatedly calling on Google to cancel the project. So far, our leadership’s response has been unsatisfactory.

The magnitude of this statement cannot be overstated. I’ll have a lot to say about this on my podcast later this week, but at the moment, this is the biggest story in tech. I highly recommend you read through it. It’s short and it’s powerful. Well done Googlers. #privacy #politics #openweb
